Are AmeriColor gels sold at Michael's or Hobby Lobby? I have always used Wilton but want to try AmeriColor after hearing a lot of great reviews.

I have found them on line and I was shocked that Amazon sold the student 12 pack for double what I have seen other places online. I was looking at Cakes By Sam and they have a $4.50 charge in addition to S&H but that isn't so bad after seeing what Amazon is charging. I also want to buy a Magic Line 9x13 pan.

I love to bake but I have always had an interest in decorating and want to learn on my own (with the help of this board) this summer. I have also requested some books and videos from my public library.

You can order americolor from this site. I never have, though.

You can get them on CC for a great price! they are the lowest price i have found so far.

To my knowledge there are not any Michaels or Hobby Lobby's that sell Americolor gels.

As for Magic Line pans I have great service through KitchenKrafts.com I haven't ordered any magic line pans from them yet b/c they were not carrying them when i bought mine. But i have bought a lot of things from them and awesome service and reasonable S&H.

I just received a set of Americolor that I ordered from Sugarcraft. And also got a 9x13 MagicLine pan from E-bay. Can't wait to use them

Right here from CC they ship really quick and the customer service is great and they definitely have the best price.

I don't know about Hobby Lobby, but Michael's only sells Wilton products.
You could also try calling around to your local cake decorating supply stores.

My local cake decorator supply sells them, but with the sale price here they're cheaper...even with shipping.

I just ordered some from here (CC) last week and they were at my home (I'm in MD) in 2 days! And the price was great.

I used them over the weekend and I'm dumping all of my other colors now! The Americolors were so vibrant and beautiful and I had to use very little to get the desired color. I'm going to order enough to replace my other colors, I was THAT impressed.

I am so glad that so many of you are happy with AmeriColors and Cake Central. I placed an order last night from here and I am really looking forward to receiving them. Of course, I wanted some of the colors that were out of stock, so I will have to keep a close eye out for when a new shipment comes in.

I bought 14 of the .75oz bottles. My question is this, how fast are you going through a bottle this size? I am wondering if I should be buying two or three bottles of the colors I would use the most. In the past I have used the Wilton colors and I am so excited to hear "read" the AmeriColor is superior to Wilton.

I now need a Magic Line pan but I would have to wait one month to order from this site (the pans should be in then). I am not sure I want to wait that long.
